If you love pesto, then you have to try this couscous recipe. There is a double punch of basil, both in the pesto and fresh pesto leaves. It is a quick and easy side dish to serve with fish or chicken.


Serves 4 to 6

1 cup couscous

3 tablespoons pesto
3/4 cup garbanzo beans
4 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
1/4 cup feta cheese
1 tomato, diced small 
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Place couscous into a small bowl. Heat broth to a boil. Pour boiling broth over couscous, cover with a plate and let stand for five minutes. Fluff with a fork and place into a large bowl. Stir in pesto, garbanzo beans, fresh basil, feta, tomato and pine nuts.

Season with salt and pepper and serve.
